Digilearning wanted to take digital skills into local communities so we did exactly that! Digilearning’s WeRise festival took place on the 7th and 8th March and we’ve had some great feedback from the people that attended which made all the hardwork worthwhile.
We absolutely loved seeing the kids enjoying the stem games, talking to parents helping them to understand the dangers teenagers face everyday online and helping small local business create new online profiles. It was all very rewarding.
Here are a few pictures from the event but head over to our Facebook page for the full album https://www.facebook.com/digilearningHQ/
